Doug Steenland To Serve Two-Year Term
The Air Transport Association of
America announced Friday the election of Douglas Steenland,
President and CEO of Northwest Airlines, to chairman of the ATA
board of directors.
Steenland will serve a two-year term as ATA chairman. He will
work with ATA President and CEO James C. May on a number of
industry issues, including pushing for effective government action
to dramatically expand the capacity of our nation’s aging air
traffic management system in order to meet burgeoning demand.
"ATA and our member airlines thank outgoing board chairman
Gerard Arpey of American Airlines, who chaired the industry group
through a particularly difficult few years," said May. "With our
thanks to Gerard, we look forward to Doug’s leadership in
continuing to advance the public’s interest in a robust,
dynamically structured aviation system."
"I am honored to serve as chairman of the ATA board as we chart
a new course for the future," said Steenland. "This is an industry
that faces constant financial and operating pressures -- from
record oil prices to an outdated air traffic control system. I look
forward to working with my colleagues to help steer the industry
through its challenges."
Steenland was elected chief executive officer to Northwest
Airlines in 2004, having served as its president since April
